Sporting unique styling and new elements, the chunky scooter is a far cry from other models from the HMSI line-up. Weighing just 102kgs, this scooter is lightweight and low. The unisex model gets a rugged design and distinctive off-road friendly feel. There is a spacious footboard up front, large seat with an under-storage compartment and an optional rear carrier.
The black tubular carrier at the back of the scooter moves towards the long and wide seat that offers enough room for the rider and pillion. Towards the sides, it looks chunky, thanks to the uniquely designed round elements. At the front fascia, the scooter wears a large front apron, which is one of the largest in the scooter segment. In addition, the scooter also comes with optional floorboard-mounted lockable boxes that provide more storage space.
